Types of Corning Cable

CableOrganizer.com Tip: Here are some Corning cable types and what they do, courtesy of CableOrganizer.com:

  • Corning MIC riser cables: use these for routing cable inside of buildings, building backbone, horizontal installations in riser shafts, telecommunications rooms and work stations for all high speed data applications.
  • Corning MIC plenum cables: meant for building backbone and horizontal installations in plenum and general purpose environments.
  • Corning ALTOS all dielectric gel-free cables: lightweight cables used for outdoor aerial and duct installations.
  • Corning FREEDM LST gel-free cables: good for inter and intra building backbones for aerial, duct and riser applications. Gel-free makes cable preparation easy because the cables contain no messy gels. Also, with this cable the buffer, tubes and fibers in each tube are color-coded for quick, easy identification.
